Peugeot, IBM agree to expanded "connected car" partnership deal
[FRANKFURT] PSA Peugeot Citroën, Europe's second largest carmaker, and computer services supplier IBM, said on Wednesday they agreed to a partnership deal for connected car services that go beyond current navigation and infotainment offerings.
Financial terms of the new, seven-year deal were not disclosed. The agreement to develop new types of valued-added services for vehicles builds on an initial partnership between the automaker and technology consultant announced a year ago.
The companies said in a joint statement they plan to develop services within vehicles, for drivers and passengers, as well as back-end applications that, for example, could perform preventive car maintenance and traffic management functions.
